About the University of Twente

High tech and Human Touch

We stand for life sciences and technology. High tech and human touch. Education and research that matter. New technology which drives change, innovation and progress in society. With 9.000 students and 3.300 employees, the University of Twente is the only campus university in the Netherlands; divided over six faculties we provide more than fifty educational programmes. The University of Twente has a strong focus on personal development and talented researchers are given scope for carrying out pioneering research.

International research of the highest quality

Our research is highly regarded at both the national and international levels, and is accommodated within six very active research institutes. These focus on nanotechnology, information technology, biomedical technology and technical medicineinnovation & governance and geo-information science/earth observation. The research institutes combine scientific excellence with a sharp eye for knowledge valorization (the process of translating newly developed knowledge into economic activity) and social applications. They are highly successful in generating spin-off businesses.

Science depends on developing talent. The large number of research environments at the University of Twente make it an attractive destination for researchers. There are opportunities for junior and senior researchers alike. Twente Graduate School and tenure track positions both attract new research talent. Dedicating extra space and money to develop excellence has proved to be an excellent strategy. Twente's research output and citation rates are well above the national average.

The education of the University of Twente is organized in the faculties

With effect from 1 May 2014 there has been a merger of the faculty of Behavioural Sciences  and the School of Management and Governance. Both are combined into the new Faculty of Behavioural, Management and Social sciences.
